Blurb: Some call this river a taker of souls, a reaper. Sanguine is the Spanish word for blood and God knows plenty has been spilled in its murky depths. As Tina floats on her back, she couldn’t help but feel its more of an artery, giving life to its limbs.
Not everyone would agree.
Tough as nails, Tina Foster, doesn’t have time for a relationship. She’s far too busy running her family construction company. Tina’s take charge attitude may intimidate some, but to others, she’s a rock, a woman with a plan. Taming a heart this strong will take a man up for a challenge, and so far, there haven’t been too many contenders worthy of her time.
Bo Galloway is returning to Riverview after a rough few years. He’s home to take care of his grandmother and prays for a chance at redemption and a fresh start. Untrusting of most women, he doesn’t know what to think of his new boss. He definitely didn’t expect to admire Tina Foster. Bo’s only shot at getting Tina to notice him is to be as strong as she is.
Just like the waters of the Sanguine, Bo and Tina must find their flow. Will the waters sweep away their only chance at true love, or nourish a relationship as steady as the river itself?
I really liked this book. Except, the fact that Bo went like super alpha towards the end which was a bit inconsistent with his character in the beginning of the book.
I liked Bo though, his personality was calm cool and collected. He reminded me of one of those people that don’t speak that much but when they do, you listen, cause you know its something important. Those kind of people fascinate me cause I can’t keep my gab shut! 😉 His love of family was inspiring considering his shaky past, but I loved that he wasn’t jaded by it. I wouldn’t have blamed him one bit if he was.
And then there’s Tina. Ah, I may have a ladie boner for this woman! She had sass without coming off as a diva. She makes you think YES! Finally a woman who is REAL! The transition between her showing strength and being vulnerable was great! It felt very authentic.
The love story started slow but then once it did it was like someone slammed on the gas which jarred me a bit but I got over it pretty quickly since the story was so good. The water references were consistent and relevant and I loved how they were incorporated into the story.
I’d read more from this author.
